High Waisted Shorts!

I’ve been dreaming of high waisted shorts for ages now, and I managed to convince my boss to let me make some for the range we make for the charity Traid. I was allowed to cut myself out a pair so I can rock them when it stops snowing and warms up a bit!

I made the pattern by frankensteining this vintage Simplicity 5411 trouser/shorts pattern from 1964 I bought on ebay for the rise, hips and legs part with a high waisted skirt pattern for the waist shaping. The fabric is vintage wool donated to the charity, with gold buttons cut off some unusable garments.

Thanks for looking and happy retro sewing! xxx
